Upper Ball Joint w / Lift & squeaking

Vehicle:

2004 Toyota Tacoma DBL CAB

Lift:

0ME-882 Front w/ DAKARs in rear (just installed a few days ago)

Tires: 265/75/R16 DURATRAC

Bumper: ARB Bull Bar w/ M8000-s winch

Maintenance: Vehicle was aligned following the OME lift (a few days ago)

Problem: Just put about 20 miles on vehicle so far and the upper ball jointsor UCA's on both sides are squeaking (not sure which) but just noticed this AM squeaking on both sides.

What can be done to resolve this? Thank you in advance. Great forum!

Thanks for the reply. They are stock UCA's but would like to keep the stock UCA's if possible just not sure if I need to go aftermarket or just buy better greasable ball joints. Looking foward to the opinions and experiences from others on the site before deciding.
